This was our first time visiting. I will start with the positive. We had a two bed room cottage that was on the end of the row of cottages, so we faced the lake. We had a beautiful view of the lake. However, the inside of our cottage was dirty. I can tolerate the fact that the furniture and appliances... More

The hotel staff were friendly but I was woke up before 8 am by maintenance staff drilling something so loud it sounded like they were in my brain. The exterior of the building needs upgraded badly as well as cleaned. The pool was nice and overlooks the lake which was very nice. The room also needed upgraded with the comforters... More

Eighty was as high as we could set it, and we had to turn it off at one... More

Cottage with 2 beds actually has 1. The crack Kenlake marketing team calls this an "upgrade" as the double bed was replaced with a queen. They don't mention that the twin bed was removed altogether. But this is academic as you'll be sleeping in your car to avoid the horrible stink that assaults your nose after the clerk lets you... More

We stay at the cabins...not a fan of the loges beds or rooms. Great location, very nice full service marina, very friendly and accommodating staff and a great value for the location. Ky lake has the best fishing and boating around and KenLake is the place to stay.

We stayed in the Kenlake State Park campground. Beautiful lake front sites, paved roads, decks on some sites. The restrooms were a little worn and weathered. We ate at the lodge restaurant and enjoyed a buffet dinner with scenic views and great service.

We went to Ken-Lake RV Resort for the weekend. We arrived on Friday afternoon. We paid for the entire weekend. Once we arrived we had to park our RV in this tiny little slot, difficult parking area, hard to maneuver without hitting another RV. Dirty looking, didn't have a fire pit, every area was supposed to have one. Had to... More

My husband and I just stayed at this small resort to celebrate our 20th anniversary. It was small, clean, and very peaceful. We will definitely go back again when we want to escape to a quiet destination. The rooms are small and although I read several reviews about how small the bathrooms were, it was larger then many motels I... More
